Hello, I am a physician in Longview. I am against the coal transport project here for many reasons. For one, the effects of the coal dust in the air on the health of our community will be significant especially affecting a lower income neighborhood nearest the site. I am concerned about the overall economic impact, loss of property value and decreased ability to recruit physicians and other businesses to this area. The presence of a coal export facility would impact our quality of life and would not be any where near outweighed by the few jobs that would be created. Lee Ann Gekas, M.d.
